There is of course a lot of highly involved science in this type of paper, but I find that the "intro" sections often summarize very useful material. In this study for instance, the evidence that the eggs had a very high mortality in alkaline water, but at pH 6.5 all eggs survived and hatched. And when fry were fed artemia (newly hatched brine shrimp) which is what most of us would use, there was a higher mortality rate than if they were fed protozoans. And the better parental care due to various factors. This sort of info is (or should be) of value to aquarists.
